Standing O or Hell No: Cate Blanchett

cate b_palm springsI've spotted quite a few articles these past few days regarding post-holiday blues.  Dear Readers, put those depression-bon-bons down and raise your glasses up because there remains so much to celebrate: the beginning of 2016, the commencement of awards season, and the fact that Cate Blanchett remains flawless (which is her inalienable right)! This Marc Jacobs dress is a total home run and a perfect first step onto the yards and yards of red carpet that she will walk this year.  The gown's blue hue highlights her eyes as perfectly as the cut highlights her shape.  The gold applique is glitzy but elegant and the addition of a single, chunky gold bracelet is divine.  As is the woman herself.  If I exhibited even the slightest stalker tendencies, CB would have cause to worry.  And cause to request an injunction.  Standing O, as usual! So do not fret, friends.  Simply begin planning the viewing parties you will throw for the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Grammys, and Oscars!
